“Democracy is in the blood of the Muslims who look upon complete equality of mankind, and believe in fraternity, equality, and liberty.”― Muhammad Ali Jinnah

PAKPAC was honored to take part in the third annual Immigrant Heritage Month activities in Washington. PAKPAC members were invited to a reception on Capitol Hill and a half day conference at the White House.

Immigrant Heritage Month – enacted by a resolution in the Congress -has celebrated the millions of stories that make up our nation’s interwoven narrative during a joyous, month-long celebration.

We are a nation of immigrants. Whether you are an immigrant from Pakistan or the child of an immigrant from Pakistan or you stand with Pakistani American immigrants, it’s on all of us to ensure that we continue to recognize the role immigrants continue to play at the core of this amazing country.
